PS3 fanboys hear the unhappy news from EA


The PS3 fans
have something new to complain about, courtesy of EA. EA has taken the unprecedented step of explaining why the newly released Madden 08 runs faster on the Xbox 360 than it does on the PlayStation 3. PS3 owners have started to complain about the choppy frame rates on the PS3 when compared to the smoother frame rates and game performance on the Xbox 360.

According to the Madden 08 developers at EA much of the problem centers around the fact that the frame rates on the PS3 are limited to 30 frames per second, while the Xbox 360 is able to push over 60 frames per second, leading to faster and smoother game play. The 30 frames per second limitation on the PS3 is something that has been widely reported in the past couple of months.

As the Xbox 360 has been around longer, the tools and overall development knowledge of the platform is much deeper than the PS3. EA also stated that it is their goal to “get it right” on all 10 platforms that they deliver the new Madden 08 title on. Developers continue to whisper that it is still easier to develop titles for the Xbox 360 than it is for the PS3. Software development on the PS3 has a steeper learning curve according to many sources.

EA also stated that all of the other football titles that have been released or will be released this year for the PS3 will also be running at 30 frames per second, as well. PS3 owners may continue to be disappointed with the 30 frames per second limitation, and who would not be after spending as much money as they did for a PS3 console? It is still unknown at this time if Sony is able or will be able to join the 60 frames per second club with an update to the console in the future.
